Re: wont startup

You may want to try to reset your CMOS.
Try to locate the manual for this particular motherboard. The manual should show you the location of the CMOS jumper on the motherboard. Once you have located the information that will tell you which pins on the jumper have to be shorted to clear the CMOS, you can start the process of clearing CMOS.
But before you change the pin settings, you must make sure that your computer is completely powered down. You must remove your power source to the unit, because CMOS is where the BIOS settings are saved when the unit is turned off but yet it still receives power.
If you succeed with clearing the CMOS and can bootup,get to the BIOS settings make sure you go to the PNP/PCI settings are set not to lose the new settings

SOURCE: Asus Motherboard not booting

Once you,ve Flashed The Bios unsucessfully the board is dead.
Theres Nothing You Can Do, Unless The Bios-Chip Is In A Socket On The Motherboard, Which Is Removable.
You Can Then Send It To A company to have the bios re-flashed.
The Bios Is The Motherboards Memory. Instructing it What to Do on Boot-up, what it,s capabilitys are, what to do, what to look for
For when they,re connected to it, what how to configure items. et,c et,c. By re-flashing The Bios.
You,ve rendered The Board Useless
The Valuable Lesson Here Is. If it,s Not Broken Don,t Try to Fix It. Look On The Internet For Bios/eeprom Reprogramming.

Foxconn 945G7MA-8EKRS2 Motherboard will not post with pentium d cpu ,i have even updated with the lates bios flash,

Good day,
According to Intel 945G chipset supports Celeron D up to Core2Duo. Intel Gigabyte's 945 DS3 even supports up to Core2Quad. GByte Foxconn has 3 mobo bios from there site. Foxconn
According to their date: Latest to oldest
4BFF1P56 No Version 4BFF1P40
Have you tried installing the no version bios? In my experience some latest bios have some problems with other devices so try to use the no version bios. or try a different mobo bios with the same chipset from Foxconn. below are two foxconn mobo models i can't see the difference.
